As with many things in life, there are times when you should definitely hire a pro. Chris and I have been learning that this week while trying to do some DIY projects around our home-studio. Replacing the front door, trim and base moulding in the front entrance certainly seemed like an easy thing to do. Boy were we wrong!
Apparently walls are never completey square and painting always takes longer than expected…especially if you are a perfectionist like me. It’s been three days and with the amount of editing I’ve got to do I can’t afford that sort of time away from my computer!!! The worst part is now have a raspberry pink front door with cat prints on it. I wanted a deep, dark “Edit 1 Media” red with NO cat prints.
Oh, and I have two cats with pink paws now too.
Fortunately this is something that can be fixed. In the long run it’s taken up a lot of time and will cost us quite a bit more money than if we had just hired a pro. However, unlike some things in life, at least we have an opportunity to fix it.
There are still too many couples that underestimate how much experience and skill goes in to shooting and editing a wedding video. Unfortunately some brides skimp on videography or skip it all together, only to later regret it. The worst part is all the memories that are lost can never be regained. The parts of the day that the bride and groom missed are gone forever. And as time goes on, this regret only gets worse.
So take it from me, whether you are replacing the trim in your house or looking at a wedding video, I highly recommend hiring a pro!!! You’ll be glad you did later on!
